PHILADELPHIA: The Erotic Literary Salon, unique in the English-speaking world has launched a growing movement mainstreaming erotica. Salons attract a supportive audience of 40 or more individuals. Approximately half participate as writers, readers, storytellers, spoken word performers of original works/words of others, the rest just come to listen, enjoy and applaud. Lily, our resident nonagenarian (93 years young) often recites her original erotica.

The next Salon will be held Tuesday, March 16th. Part of the evening will feature upcoming erotic fiction?author Violet Glaze. She will be reading a passage from her newest novel Will Success Spoil Pace Hammond?. A martini-drenched crawl through the glittery underbelly of gay Hollywood, circa 1957. Her first book Hotel Butterfly, an erotic novel of enchanted Japan, was described as "Like Spirited Away, only for adults" by eroticist Katrina Strauss. You can read more of her short fiction, graphic novels, film criticism and arts journalism at
